Talking About Educational Materials For K-12 Students

Hi there, I’m Jax. Welcome to my site about K-12 educational materials and supplies. When I was attending school, the books were easily decades old at the newest. The books often had outdated information the teachers had to correct during the lesson. My teachers would print handouts that explained why the information was no longer relevant. I want to prevent this issue by sharing information about finding the right supplies, including books, for the classroom without breaking the bank. I will talk about using innovative online learning materials in lieu of actual textbooks for certain subjects. Hopefully this information can help children learn more effectively.

What Subjects Will Your Child Learn In Preschool?

What will your child learn in preschool? If your child is about to start an early education program, take a look at the common content and top subjects your little learner will cover during their school day.

Early Literacy

The journey to reading starts in the first few years of life. Even though your child won't master the written word right now, they're building skills that will help them later in their schooling and later in life. The early education environment can help your child to:

  • Learn letters. Your child will learn how to identify letters and the sounds they make. They may also learn how to write a few letters, including the ones that make up their name.
  • Learn the story structure. This includes the parts of a narrative (beginning, middle, and end), character identification, and setting.
  • Learn how to handle a book. Your preschooler will learn how to handle, hold, and manipulate books.

The preschooler's vocabulary is developing at a rapid pace. Along with letter identification and story structure, expect your child to come home knowing and using plenty of new words.

Science Exploration

Biology, chemistry, physics, and Earth sciences are all topics that preschoolers cover. While you won't find early childhood lessons that parallel high school-level learning, you will see exploration, experimentation, and discovery in the early childhood classroom.

Your child will engage in hands-on learning, exploring concepts and ideas in a concrete way. This may include collecting natural materials, looking through a prism, testing objects that sink or float, or any number of other age-appropriate science experiments. Not only will your child engage in experiments, but they'll also use the scientific process—creating predictions, observing, and coming up with conclusions.

Math Basics

Early math learning includes building basics in arithmetic, geometry, statistics, and more. The preschooler is learning how to identify numbers and add small sums. Instead of writing out equations, expect to see your child use objects or math manipulatives to count and create simple equations.

Preschool also helps the young child to understand geometry (basic shapes), making measurements, sorting, and classifying objects.

Social Studies

Who are the community helpers? Your preschooler will learn about the people in their own community—but that's not all. Beyond understanding their own community, country, and culture, the young child is ready to learn about how people live in other areas of the world.

A private preschool is more than just a place to play during the day. The early childhood classroom is a place of learning where young students build new skills, learn new concepts, and create a foundation for a lifetime of education.
